"Edinburgh’s Grand Opera evoked both the comedy and the heartbreak of Puccini’s classic ...  orchestral excellence created an atmosphere of emotional cohesion which contributed to the overall affectivity of the production ... The depth of Puccini’s masterpiece arguably owes its posterity to its exploration of human relationships, desire, and loss. It is in this way, that Edinburgh’s Grand Opera paid an excellent homage."

The Student Newspaper (La bohème 2016)
